Chicago Restaurants

I am a big fan of trying out restaurants. I like finding good, cheap, byob's, but mainly, I really like dressing up and going to a trendy, expensive restaurant downtown. I like trying them out and being able to say "Yes, I've been there!" when someone at work or in passing asks me if I've tried the latest hot spot.

It's an extravagant hobby, yes...I know.....but....oh well!

Here is the list of the trendy/best restaurants to try out in Chicago. Hopefully in the next 3 years or so, I'll have visited them all. I recommend checking this list out again if you ever get a chance to come visit Chicago - and I'd love to meet you for a drink too!
  • Girl and the Goat
  • Japonias John Legend sighting - going on Saturday
  • L20
  • Table 52 Lady Gaga/Miley Cyrus/Obama's -Valentine's Reservations!
  • Graham Elliot
  • Alienea
  • Spiaggia
  • Mastro's a favorite of Kristen Cavellari


  1. My sister just went to Girl and the Goat and LOVED it. I'll tell her to go with you ;-D

  2. I've been to Japonias and Graham Elliot! Both absolutely amazing! My boyfriend's dad and stepmom live downtown near soldier field! We are hoping to move up there this summer!
